    Serving on the European Central Bank’s first Executive Board, Otmar Issing oversaw the birth of the Eurozone.

Einführung in die Geldtheorie (Introduction to Monetary Theory) has proven itself through 15 editions, and Einführung in die Geldpolitik (Introduction to Monetary Policy) through six. His detailed study of the Euro, Der Euro – Geburt, Erfolg, Zukunft (The Birth of the Euro) appeared in 2008 and was soon translated into Chinese.
